BSF jawans are known for the dedication and hardwork. There have been many incidences in the past where the BSF jawans saved the lives of citizens in perilous situations, at times, even at the cost of their own lives. Last year in April 16, another jawan- Constable Vena Chhangte rescued and saved the life of a differently abled person trapped in an inferno at Zotlang, Lunglei in Mizoram when he was on leave.
Earlier this month, BSF jawans came to the rescue of a critically injured man of Nuaguda area in Odisha. The jawans went beyond duty to save his life by rushing him to hospital on time. According to reports, the victim had suffered critical head injury after slipping off his bike in Nuaguda. After BSF’s Assistant Commandant posted in Salimi spotted him, he was rushed to Mathili Medical for treatment.
